Nietzsche on writing with blood

Of all that is written, I love only what man has written with his blood. Write in blood, and you will experience that blood is spirit. That everyone may learn to read, in the long run corrupts not only writing but also thinking. Once the spirit was God, then he became a man, and now he even becomes rabble. Whoever writes in blood and aphorisms does not want to be read, but to be learned by heart.

-Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
